. Alternatively, sex differences in digit ratios could arise if bones from different fingers are differentially receptive to sex steroids or if the bones of different fingers have similar responses to sex steroids but differ in their temporal pattern of growth. However, it should be noted that specific direct

, some teams will crumble and will get real negative on each other. Or like point fingers, where I think that’s the time you need to bring everybody together. That’s the time you need to say, “We’re fine. We’re fine. Let’s turn this around.” Despite the commonalities of the athletic successes in the two

heavily, feral—out of control. His watch caught my pubic hair. He placed his fingers inside me, he was beginning to hurt me . . . I asked him to stop. I wanted him to stop. Terrified, I begged for him to stop. He refused. in the end I had no choice, and I gave in to the inevitable. The next thing I

One could draw from these findings to point the finger at women, blaming them for their underrepresented status. But, such conclusions ignore

timekeepers at one timing task would be consistent timekeepers at other timing tasks. Robertson et al. ( 1999 ) required research participants to perform a finger tapping task at each of four metronome periods: 325, 400, 475, and 550 ms. In addition, these participants also performed a circle-drawing timing

this problem with the task of reaching a target with an arm. A spatial target can be described with three coordinates, while there are at least seven main axes of joint rotation in the human arm (even if one does not count scapular motion and finger motion). To perform a reaching movement the person

performed a finger-tapping task on two separate visits. On both occasions, researchers found that children with CP activated the motor cortex bilaterally when they used their paretic hand during finger tapping but activated the contralateral motor cortex when using their preferred hand. Their data support

traditional productions in India and France are quite different, the mechanical constraints the potter has to satisfy to throw a pot are the same, producing and controlling rotational kinetic energy associated with finger pressure. Potters from both groups had to produce pots of spherical shape, from two
